    Detecting how an application is closed

    SilentChris Level 1

      I'm trying to incorporate the behavior into my application where when you close all the windows, the app doesn't actually close but the windows just get hidden.  However, as a general rule this only happens when you either click the close button on the window or when using cmd/ctrl-W to close windows.  Other methods of quitting (alt-f4, cmd-q, choosing "Quit" from a menu) should actually close the application.


      Right now, I'm just hooking into the "closing" event on a WindowedApplication.  The problem I have is that I can't tell the difference between the different types of closing.  Is there any way to detect what happened to cause the closing event?  Or alternatively, is there a way I could detect a user clicking on the close button on the window without having custom chrome? (That way, I could just let the rest of the events that cause  the closing event to fire to actually close the app).
